THE FURIOUS 5 + KURTIS BLOW // 23AUG09

Playing tracks by

Shuriken Media, The Furious 5 and Kurtis Blow, The Mighty Mocambos and Danny Drive Thru.

It was the return of hip hop legends, embarking anew across the world and starting it in Manchester by signing with Shuriken, a local PR firm. A couple of gigs later the two parties parted ways, following (public, Facebooked) disagreements over dollars.

To be honest this was looking pretty disastrous until it actually happened, as I had to hook up my Sony Ericsson to New York, then conference call with 4 rappers. Chaos. Props to Danny Drive Thru for keeping the decks rolling while that happened...

The F5 came back with the intention of showing everyone else how it's done, and not being shy about their relationship (or lack of) with Grandmaster Flash. Some light is shed in the course of this talk; whether or not the Five and Blow are still of the same opinions I have no idea.

Broadcast live on Unity Radio Manchester, 23AUG11
